  4. 4. Why Open Access? OA aims to ensure the widest possible dissemination and access to the results of research OA provides free, online access to research literature – at no costs for readers (apart from internet access) – offers a wide range of usage rights: read, download, copy, distribute, print, index etc. – author/s have to be properly acknowledged and cited, copyright remains with the author/s 4
  5. 5. Flavors of Open Access OA Self-Archiving = Deposit of author‘s final manuscripts in digital repositories OA Publishing = Publisher disseminates the work open access immediately and replaces subscription incomes by publication charges (using research grants, institutional funds etc.) Examples: BioMed Central‘s journals, New Journal of Physics, Nucleic Acids Research,… Hybrid OA Publishing = Publisher charges for OA option within its subscription journals Example: Springer‘s Open Choice 5
  6. 6. Benefits for researchers Increased visibility of research output Potentially increased number of citations and impact of publications Faster access, speeding up the research and discovery process Information about usage of papers in the repository Facilitates the creation of bibliographies and publication lists Compliance with funding body OA policies 6
  7. 7. OA Impact Cochrane 2010

  9. 9. Repositories > 1.700 institutional & disciplinary repositories worldwide, > 830 in Europe Content types: journal articles, theses & dissertations, reports, conference papers, book chapters, multimedia etc.

  15. 15. SC39 Overview Special Clause 39 on Open Access, applies to all contracts signed after August 20, 2008 Pilot based on „Self-Archiving“ / „green“ OA Applies to seven areas of the 7th Framework Programme: – 6 month embargo: “Health”, “Energy”, “Environment”, “Information & Communication Technology” (Cognitive systems/robotics), “Research infrastructures” (e-infrastructures) – 12 month embargo: “Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities” and “Science in Society” w_clauses.pdf15
  16. 16. ERC Guidelines for OA ERC awards individual researchers with grants in the FP7 Specific Programme IDEAS. Since December 2007, the ERC requires researchers to deposit all peer-reviewed publications from ERC-funded research projects into an appropriate institutional or disciplinary repository and subsequently make them open access within 6 months of publication. Moreover, researchers are encouraged to deposit primary data into relevant databases (such as DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) as soon as possible, preferably immediately but not later than 6 months after the date of publication. sed_Dec07_FINAL.pdf 16
